I love making cookies. They are one of my favorite things to bake. I used to make cookies all the time, however since going gluten free I have only made them twice. Gluten free cookies are just not the same. I am trying to come up with some good gluten free cookies by adapting some of my old favorites, but the results have been mixed.
However I have been craving cookies, so when I saw a recipe from Emeril for flourless peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, I knew I wanted to try it.
Not only do we love cookies in our house, we love peanut butter. I have seen quite a few recipe for flourless peanut butter cookies and they are all basically the same.
We loved these cookies. It was so nice to have a cookie again that was really good. We loved these so much that they did not even last 24 hours. We ate way too many of these. I told my sister about these cookies and she decided to try them. Her family also loved them.
One of the reasons I like this recipe is because it is a normal, but gluten free recipe. There is nothing strange or weird in these cookies. Anyone would have the ingredients on hand to make these. These are a cookie everyone would enjoy.
You can make them without the chocolate chips, but we love them with the chocolate added.
Note: I shared this recipe before my daughter developed her peanut allergy. We now make these with soy or sunbutter and they work great.
Easy cookie recipe that is also gluten free.
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 large egg beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth.
Take about 1 heaping tablespoon of dough and roll between your hands to form a smooth ball. Place the balls of dough on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly or press with a fork.
Bake the cookies at 350 until the cookies are puffed and lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and let the cookies cool on the sheets for 4-5 minutes. Then remove them onto wire racks to cool.
